from houston to kansas city, from chicago to indianapolis, memphis to charlotte, pittsburgh to boston and on over to new york city. fast-food workers in 100 cities across the country are walking off the job today to demand higher wages. right now the median hourly wage for fast-food workers nationwide is $8.94 an hour. that is about $18,000 a year, which is just above the federal poverty level for a family of three. the goal of today's strike is simple. workers want to earn a living wage of $15 an hour, a wage that would allow them to raise their families without having to live in poverty. their employers, mcdonald's, burger king, taco bell and wendy's have seen soaring profits while workers have seen little to no gain in years. last year mcdonald's brought in $5.5 billion in profits, a 27% increase over five years. its ceo makes $13.8 million a year, a 234% pay increase from the previous year. comparatively over a period of nearly 15 years, fast-food workers only saw their wages increase by $0.10 an hour. today the disparity between worker and ceo is so high it would take 9

all day long today as this story evolved. this story starts here in the city of tijuana in mexico, right across the border from san diego. last thursday on thanksgiving day, a big truck left the hospital in tijuana, ultimately heading across the country, almost a thousand miles to mexico city. that is how far they were supposed to go on the route. it was a very long trip and a very important trip, because that truck was carrying this. it is an old piece of equipment from that hospital in tijuana. this particular equipment was used in radiation therapy, which means that the equipment itself was radioactive. the hospital was ready to replace the old equipment with new stuff. but first it had to send the old, now radioactive equipment to a facility for storing nuclear waste. the piece of old equipment from the hospital in tijuana was loaded with little pellets with something called cobalt 60. it is a radioactive isotope, that used in the right way, could save you from cancer, but in the wrong way, it could kill you. one of the worst nuclear accidents of all time happened in 1987 when

pretty much anywhere. it forces cities and towns across the state to allow guns in public places, even if locally, the police and the town and the people who live there do not want that. when one small-town mayor in morrisville, north carolina, campaigned to protect her ton's longstanding policy banning guns in a local park, the national rifle association decided to weigh in in that little town of 20,000 people and try to make an example out of her. they poured resources into the mayoral race in that small town to try to get rid of her. they called her a member of a radical national gun ban group. they poured resources into that race, and when she lost her re-election bid a few weeks later, the nra took credit for it. if your town doesn't think that guns belong on your playgrounds or in your parks, well, if you're in north carolina, too bad, you don't get a choice in the matter anymore. by the way, the nra will come after you if you try to fight it. on the substance of it, though, let's say you're okay with the idea of guns in playgrounds. how about guns in bars? how about that? and th
